This is one of the nicest perfumes I have ever worn, hands down.
I've read a lot of reviews saying that this smells tropical or beachy, but with my chemistry, this is a very buttery gourmand with very obvious vanilla notes and a toned-down coconut note. It's a good all-seasons scent, but I think I would like this most in the winter because it's such a cuddly, comforting scent.
On me, this smells exactly like a warm vanilla cake with coconut whipped frosting, or maybe coconut vanilla cookies. Regardless, it's a sweet, yummy bakery scent! The coconut milk is definitely less dominant than the Tahitian vanilla in my opinion, but the two scents compliment each other perfectly. I can't smell the heliotrope in this at all, either!
This is a scent that's pleasantly sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, which can be a problem with gourmands. Highly recommended for anyone with a bit of a sweet tooth!
